Here are a few additional changes added to the FL2077 update.

--= Skins =--
Additional skins included, not previously mentioned. See the second post in this thread for pictures.
By Iart7: Fw 190D-9, B-239, Hawk 75, Bf 109G-2e, Fokker D.XXI.
By Nookyb: SBD-5

--= C-47 Dakota and L2D3 Tabby =--
Paratrooper count reduced back to 24, this to avoid the graphics not renedering all troopers when to many troopers are running in one area (invisible paratroopers).

--= Japanese cockpit gauge needles corrected =--
All Japanese fighters and bombers have also had their cockpit gauges fixed.
* The speed gauge does not have all notches at a constant interval, but now correctly shows your speed between 200-400 kmh, and quite correctly below/above these speeds.
* The climb rate is now correctly shown on the gauge, but for some reason can't go above 2100 m/min.
* The flaps indicators have all been fixed, and now show the plane's full flaps at the end of the markings.
* Corrections to a few engine temperature gauges.
* The J2M compass now shows the correct heading. Was previously offset by 10 degrees.

Robert, Thank you for the graphs but I find some of the colors are hard to relate between the graph lines and the legend. I my experience the pastels don't present as well as primary and secondary colors.

Am I the only one? Maybe it is my old eyes fading on me.

Thanks for the reply Robert :mrgreen:

Thanks, Robert. It's often a bit hard decision between faster but unarmed (Dakota/Tabby) or slower but armed one, when taking grunts for sightseeing. JU52 is not exactly a gunboat, but I've had some success with it in Tunisia.

Robert..
Hey can you please check with SPINDZ and see if your new update was included in the 32 bit Mac updater? I have run the updater 3 times and each time it comes back saying all files are up to date, but then when I log in it says update available in the pop up box on the map in the Legacy Arena..

Until I get a new computer I have to play in the 32 bit world as the 64 bit isnt quite right compared to the 32 bit.. which isnt updating again.
Appreciate the help/ Thanks!

Update.. Now that the TOD has rolled over and we have a new map, I can not access entry into the arenas as I get the 'Do you want to Update Y/N?
Same problem still .. yes to update, updater runs says all files up to date.. then still cant access arenas. Same prompt over and over..
Thanx!

Rgr sir, I will notify him. From what I've heard I don't think Warbirds will support 32 bit anymore though, as it requires a lot of extra work for Spindz to program an additional update for that. Better get a non-ancient machine, sir ;) . Should be fairly cheap 64 bit computers out there that can run Warbirds.

I've also notified Ient about bomber Ai wingmen in need of an update in order to function with the updated flightmodels (especially the B-24 Ai wingmen).


Cheers!
/Robert

Gotcha Robert. I was hoping to make it until WB 2020 is ready to update the machine. Maybe WB should make an announcement that they will no longer update the 32 bit so everyone knows..

OK Cheers!
